“PDP may have more political skills than APC”- Bashir Ahmad


Former Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad has decried the level of backlash given to the Buhari led Administration by some appointees of the current Bola Tinubu led government.

Bashir who served as a media aide to former President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted that the PDP is better at politics than his own party, the ruling APC.

He took to his X handle to say:

I often wonder why, as a government, we concentrate more on amplifying the faults of the previous administration rather than acknowledging its numerous achievements. The PDP seems to have a more skillful approach to politics than we do in the APC. As Abdul’aziz has pointed out, it’s rare to find instances where President Yar’adua’s (PDP) government criticized President Obasanjo’s (PDP) or where President Jonathan’s (PDP) government faulted President Yar’adua’s (PDP).

He also hinted that the Buhari led administration achieved some land mark success in some areas and should be at least applauded for that.

There are numerous accomplishments from the previous administration that we could build upon while discreetly addressing its failures. This approach would bring up unity within the ruling party. President Tinubu requires the full support of his party, not just for the upcoming 2027 elections but also for supporting his policies. We know no matter how good they may look, the opposition will always find a way to rubbish or undermine them just to distract our party from governance.

The Kano born politician believes the internal bickering within the APC will serve as a  lethal weapon to the opposition in the coming 2027 general elections.

Since May 2023, we seem to have provided more ammunition to our opponents rather than strategies to put them on the defensive, which would allow the government to focus more on continuing to deliver its best for the country.

If we had not been creating room for PDP, how could a member of the party even come here and remind us about their administration? The party spent 16 years during the oil boom without anything tangible to show for it.

This is connected to the recent lambasts from some executives of the current administration blaming Buhari for the harsh economic conditions in the country.
